Fabulous trail, but anyone who would call this moderate must be a mountain goat. At approx 600 metres of elevation change (I actually recorded it as 675 metres right to the river) this trail averages almost 25 percent slope, with more than half of the elevation change occurring in the middle third. I would say the more reliable rating is the “most difficult” one by the park service. Poles should be an absolute must for most people. Small rock outcropping about a third of the way down. Take the time to climb the outcropping. The views are worth it.

Its on the harder side for sure. But the shortness makes up for it. Bring your sunscreen.

Whoa. Great hike! Very steep and very rocky trail for lost of the way until you hit the river. Trail isn't marked but it's well traveled. It's about a 7 mile gravel drive in from the paved county road to the trail head. Good luck!

Trail is longer than 2.6 more like 1.9 one way and s should be rated hard because it is straight down and then up

loved it!

this was the hardest assent I have made. short 1.3 miles, 2000 feet up. with packs, very difficult.


One of my favorite trails, but this is definitely not a moderate hike! The first half a mile is rather flat and simple, but after that it’s a very steep and strenuous hike up to Table Rock! Bring extra water and a snack. You’ll need it!

This is absolutely not a moderate trail coming up from Spence Ridge. Well worth it, though!

Start at the Spence Ridge Trailhead, hike west approximately .3 miles to start Little Table Rock Trail. This trail takes you to the top of Table Rock via the much less traveled backside of the mountain. There is one source of water approximately 1/2 way, even in dry season. This trail gains approximately 1350 feet in 1.5 miles, but the view from the top is well worth it. Total round trip from the Spence Ridge Parking lot is approximately 4 miles.
